    i use butter to make cakes, the taste is so much better. I use lard sometimes for roast potatoes and i would if i ever made pastry as it gives a good texture. I'd much rather use natural fats even though they are higher in cholesterol- i hate all the additives.

    Well, I'm with you on the butter. I'll use that before margarine every time.

    Still can't do the switch though (butter for Crisco) in my opinion. (I'm sure folks do though ). It's the texture thing.

    I didn't make the red velvet cake in OC. I did make my Christmas rock cookies.

    According to google, cookeen is comparible to Crisco.

    You can make a red velvet cake anytime. It's not for Christmas. My grandma made it for our wedding cake.

    oh yes, I'd just thought before Christmas what a wow factor it would have for Christmas Day tea with the family!

    Hey - yummy cakes are for *any* day! I may have to practice it many times before next Christmas!
